No words can really tell how mom is feeling this week. A kitty that she grew up with has gone to the rainbow bridge. This here is Buddie. She was 22 years old and lived a long and happy life.
She developed kidney disease late last year and took a turn for the worse this week. Grandma & Grandpa made the hard decision to let her go but knew that it was the right thing to do for Buddie. She will be buried next her sisters who had passed before her out in the flower garden and a flower planted above her in rememberance.
Mom says that Buddie got her name as a wee kitten because she would always start purring when anyone would get close to her. Whenever mom & dad went for a visit, Buddie would be the first kitty to come say hello. Mom got to see Buddie one last time a few weeks ago and had a feeling she wouldn't see Buddie again so she made sure to tell her how much she was loved.
She was a very special kitty and will not be forgotten anytime soon...
